So you're probably wondering what happened in OTT between the 8th and 14th of June?

  • Apple improved their video handling. Check out their 108 patch notes if you were struggling with PiP, fullscreen and switches between unencrypted and encrypted content.
  • HLS.js went into 0.14.0, Shaka Player in 3.0.0 and THEOplayer is using a new versioning scheme.
  • The PiP W3C implementation status page received an update. The 🥎 Weekly Golden Ball goes to the contributors of this specification.
